2. A no-frills microfiber sheet set to make your bed cozy night after night.

Just make sure *not* to wash or dry them on hot: since these are made from polyester, that might make them pill faster. Promising review: "So these aren't high end sheets, but for the cost, they are well worth the buy. I own three sets of these sheets and they've all held up very well.It's fits my 14-in-deep queen foam mattress without issue. It's not too warm in the summer and still has the ability to help you keep warm in the winter. They feel pretty good. No, they won't feel like 850 thread count Egyptian cotton, but these are a fraction of the cost." —Wathan48Get them on Amazon for $13.99+ (available in twin-Cal king, including twin XL).

3. A hypoallergenic down-alternative duvet to snuggle under on Saturday mornings all year 'round.

Promising review: "This comforter is amazing! I was getting too warm with my down comforter but still wanted something soft, and this was the answer. It's very light, yet still provides enough warmth that I'm only using this with a flat sheet. It fit perfectly in my duvet cover and comes with loops on each corner and midway between the corners." —JoiseygirlGet it on Amazon for $29.99+ (available in twin-Cal king, including twin XL and oversized queen.)

Promising review: "This is the best priced, quality duvet set I have been able to find on Amazon.com and I can assure you I look far more thoroughly than most. Overall it's very soft and comfortable, the zipper at the opening is nice, (most duvets have button closures but I prefer the zipper so I'm glad it had one), and the colors are very bright and vibrant.

6. A faux-fur blanket that you basically won't be able to keep your hands off of because it's just. that. soft.

Promising review: "I started off calling this the Jon Snow blanket because it reminded me of the fluffy cape he wears, but now my family and I refer to this amazing blanket simply as Jon Snow. My house knows no blanket except for the king of the blankets named Stark.Also be forewarned, if you have any direwolves they will immediately take over Jon Snow and he will no longer belong to you. My little direwolf did this the first day I got Jon Snow. I'm considering ordering a second one just for myself now.Jon Snow is beautiful and soft on both sides and great to cuddle with. He is also machine washable and dryable and comes out looking just like new so long as you wash him in cold water and tumble dry him on low heat. He is from the North after all." —Samantha AGet it on Amazon for $27.99+.

7. A botanical duvet cover set — it brings an elegant farmhouse-chic look to basically any bedroom.

Promising review: "King size duvets can be super expensive! I can’t believe this one only cost $30. I needed a new duvet for our spare bedroom to replace one we had from ikea that got dingy over the years. This has a zipper closure, which I prefer and comes with two pillow cases. I paired this set with black sheets and a black bed skirt to match the rest of the spare room. The color matches the stock photo perfectly and the quality and material are both great. It reminds me of hotel linens. The material is pretty wrinkle free. I was too lazy to steam it before placing it on the bed, but after a few days, the creases went away." —tasha clitesGet it on Amazon for $25.95 (available in queen and king).

9. A simple solid quilt set you could use alone for a minimalist vibe or a layered with your duvet for an ultra-luxe look.

Promising review: "This quilt set is exceptional for the price. I ordered Basketweave Gray—it is soft, a very pretty silver green gray with a generous over hang for a queen bed and it comes with two very nice regular size shams. I repainted a bedroom "Mindful Gray" by Sherwin Williams and this quilt looks absolutely beautiful with this paint color. One of my best Amazon purchases ever..." —Nan C Get it on Amazon for $43.99 (available in twin, full/queen, and king).

10. A set of 400-thread count 100% cotton sheets, if you, like me, find polyester sheets just way way too hot to sleep in most of the time.

You get a full set: top sheet, bottom sheet, and two pillowcases. Promising review: "I cannot sleep comfortably without 100% cotton sheets and these have been wonderful. They are great quality especially considering how inexpensive they are. I got the blue and it's still vibrant and bright after two washes, and I have no complaints.Also, FYI 100% cotton sheets will wrinkle, you will have to iron or steam them if this bothers you. You can take precautions to reduce it, like washing on the gentle cycle, or untwisting them before putting them in the dryer, but as a rule cotton wrinkles." —BelleGet them on Amazon for $40.99+ (available in twin, full, queen, and king).

11. An elegant and traditional-ish cotton quilt set designed to last (and be washable!) for many years.

Promising review: "A lovely blue that coordinates with a variety of colors. The weight is perfect for year-round use. I add an electric blanket for winter.I’ve owned this type of Laura Ashley covering in the past and they hold up for *years*. These 100% cotton covers are workhorses! I wash mine monthly in a household machine. They just get better with age. Yes, you’ll have some fading. It’s cotton. But the quilting is so closely done that there is NO batting shift or clumps.I have an antique headboard and footboard that are attached to a queen frame. I buy the king size to ensure deep drape over the mattress and frame on each side." —JennD - librarianGet it on Amazon for $79.43+ (available in twin, full/queen, and king); also available in sage green for $53.44+.

12. A silk pillowcase — it can do wonders to reduce how frizzy your hair looks in the morning and generally just make you feel like royalty.

Promising review: "I have satin sheets on my bed but they are not high-quality and the pillowcases do very little for my hair. I would go to sleep with beautiful curls and wake up with a birds nest. After doing some research I found that silk pillowcases could help with frizzy hair. I could not be happier that I bought these because now I can wake up without looking like Mufasa had a bad blow out. Not to mention they are incredibly soft and smooth." —KhalyseeGet it on Amazon for $22.99+.

14. An incredibly soft microfiber velvet throw to drape around your shoulders while reading before bed, because sometimes you get chilly but don't want to put down your book.

Promising review: "If you're shopping for softness, I honestly can't imagine finding a softer blanket out there. Neither can the cat, apparently; it was out of the package for all of two and a half seconds before his eyes got big and he was pressing himself into it, aiming for maximum surface area contact, curling his toes up and everything. I thought he was going to pass out from the rapture. Honestly, I can't imagine a better testimonial than that." —M.Get it on Amazon for $15.99.

15. A set of two machine-washable fiber-fill pillows that let you add or remove stuffing to fine-tune the firmness you prefer.

amazon.com

That said, if you want *firmer* pillows than these, they don't come with any extra stuffing.

Promising review: "We've had these pillows for about six weeks now and we both love them! We are both side sleepers, typically, but also read in bed. The extra loft is great for reading and relaxing, and the ability to contour the fill to meet you head and neck support needs are both big pluses for us. I've tried a number of pillows over the past few years and Sable Pillows provides the best ones yet. One of us used a down pillow before since it was better for contouring than standard foam pillows, and finds this to be better in all respects." —AvidReader

Get them on Amazon for $39.99.

16. A two-inch memory foam mattress topper — it's the easiest way to upgrade a bed that's too firm so you can actually get a decent night's sleep.

amazon.com

Promising review: "This has transformed my blah mattress into something I love! I've been spoiled sleeping on a memory foam (king size) mattress for a few years now. I'm currently renting a temporary furnished apartment with a small average mattress, and I wasn't sleeping well. I can already tell that this mattress topper will make a HUGE difference in my quality of sleep. It's perfect, and definitely worth the price! I laid it out while I went out to dinner (2 hours max) and it was completely poofed up to normal size by the time I got home. It's seriously perfect, and better than I was expecting for the price." —Katie

Get it on Amazon for $39.99+.

17. A cable-knit blanket with a soft and fluffy lining that's best appreciated with low light and a cup of your favorite evening tea.

Promising review: "Oh my goodness...this blanket is so soft! I love it! I've been wanting one like it for my baby, but then I saw this adult sized one and had to get it. I see a lot of reviews here that say this blanket is thin. I wouldn't characterize it as thin, but as a disclaimer, I do live in a tropical climate. So I don't know how warm it is for super cold weather, but it's plenty cozy for cooler nights here." —Mike&CariGet it on Amazon for $27.63.

20. A wave-print duvet cover set that reverses to — dunn dunn, dunn dunn — SHARKS! — who will keep you safe from any monsters lurking under your bed.

Promising review: "I like the duvet cover, but I missed the picture on the item of the other side of the cover...the sharks. Now I personally LOVE sharks so it works well for me but I bought this to put in a guest bedroom and I changed that plan when I saw the sharks. Mainly because the guests coming are not children. LOL. So now I'll have to buy another one for the guests and keep this one for myself...Good material, bottom zip, ties in the corners." —TracyGet it on Amazon for $25.99+ (size queen; other patterns available in queen or king).

22. A glamorous striped duvet cover set so your bed always looks like it's dressed to impress.

Promising review: "This duvet cover was EXACTLY what I was looking for! The duvet is super easy to put over a blanket or comforter and closes with clear buttons that are inconspicuous. There are wider black and white stripes on one side and smaller stripes on the other so you can reverse as desired. I like the wide stripes and love the way my master bedroom looks with this set! It is pretty soft and comfortable but not too hot so it's perfect for warmer weather months." —Lindsay S. Get it on Amazon for $22.09+ (available in queen or king).

23. A set of two velvet throw pillow covers that come in 24 different colors so you're sure to find ones that match your decor.

Promising review: "If you have ordered pillow covers through Amazon before, you know that most often what you see is not what you get. I’m happy to say these are the exception. The velvet fabric is sooooo soft! And equally important, they are very well made. Each was perfectly sewn with a nice size zipper opening. One of my pet peeves is a cover that is too small for the pillow width. It’s down right maddening to try and stuff a 16” pillow through an 8” opening! I ordered them in the “velvet champagne” color, which is like a pale greige. They’re absolutely lovely and the perfect addition to my fall bedding." —Florida GalGet them on Amazon for $11.99+ (24 colors, 16"x16", 18"x18", or 20"x20" available, plus additional single sizes).
